I was treated very respectfully. I was very satisfied and will return for my next auto check-up. Thank you!

by - Verified Customer March 02, 2017

It was excellent.

by - Verified Customer February 27, 2017

I needed the repairs done (Serpentine belt idler bearing and pulley) as quickly as possible because the truck wasn't safe to operate and I had to go on a 100+ mile trip. I called about 4:00 p.m. and they had one of the parts there before closing and had all the part there by 8:30 a.m. the next morning and I was on my way with a new pulley/bearing and two new belts by 9:15 a.m. Great service, fair prices, and excellent work.

I have to return for smog. The work performed on my car needs additional mileage before this can be performed. I have always been happy with work performed. My car runs noticeably better after I have taken it to their shop.

My car broke down. I was towed to Folsom Auto Center. They did a great job fixing my car, explaining what had gone wrong and not pressuring me to do other repairs. I would take my car back to this shop.

I am happy with the repair and I would come back. I did have to bring the car back because the inner fender was not reattached to the outer fender. But everybody has an off day once in a while.

There was one issue where I needed another repair done and they did not call me back on it.

by - Verified Customer October 16, 2013

My car had multiple problems for a long time and the repair only took one day, it was repaired beyond my expectations. I also had engine problems and knew that I would have to schedule another appointment but they combined both visits and provided a free shuttle when my car was ready. They were all very friendly and know what they are doing.
